LIGHT REFLECTIONS ON LEADERS I HAVE KNOWN
I have been privileged to work with a number of leaders over the years. I left school at the age of 15 [as an “educational disaster”] and went to work immediately in what was then the War Office in Whitehall. My real education began at that point. I have been on the fringes of power ever since.
BEING A LEADER IN LEADERLESS CULTURE
There is a new “leaderless” culture. The old ideas about leaders are changing. This is partly due to the demographic shift and partly due to changes in work practices. A “leaderless” culture is one in which there is a resistance to traditional models of leadership. People like to think that they can run themselves.
